would it be possible to also include b43-fwcutter (not only bcm43xx-fwcutter)
into factory?
b43-fwcutter is needed for newer firmwares / chips.

Working packages (I used them myself) can be found for the moment in

A must-be package for factory/11.0 in my opinion. For these who don't
know: b43 is a newer driver for Broadcom wireless devices. It's based
on mac80211 and is going to replace bcm43xx. It provides support for
more devices, more stable connection, better signal and it doesn't
fail in crowded areas.
